One-day Battle Tournament
In The Ole' Berate and Switch!, Sable City held a one-day Pokémon Tournament, in which Ash entered to train for his upcoming battle with Pyramid King Brandon. Many people from the city entered the event to battle their Pokémon. It was actually ever only a scheme by Butch and Cassidy to steal the small city's Pokémon and give them to the boss.
The One-day Battle Tournament was held in a big stadium with state-of-the-art Pokémon healing center. Only one battle was ever seen in the stadium, which was Howie and his Pinsir vs. Ash and his Corphish. This is also the place where Team Rocket get back together.
